All About the Groom: Introducing A Suit That Fits guide to finding your perfect wedding suit
Today we wanted to do a little something for the lads. We know that most of the time we are getting all excited about wedding dresses, but your attire is all especially important. So today we thought we would let Claire from ‘A Suit That Fits’ fill you in on groom style. Ladies take note…
It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to looking for suits for your Groom and Groomsmen – the fit, style, colour and accessories all need consideration.
With more affordable, bespoke options on the high street, it’s now possible to have your Groom’s suit cut and stitched to perfection to make him feel really special. He can really personalise his suit with options such as having his initials (or the date of your wedding!) stitched onto his shirt cuff, or having his waistcoat lining matching the colour scheme of the wedding – the stitching on the buttonhole could even match your flowers!
What’s more, your Groom will be left with a perfectly-fitting that he can wear long after the big day. With A Suit That Fits, tailoring bespoke suits from £259 and with special wedding package deals, it’s a really affordable option.
1. What is the style of your wedding?
Choose a wedding suit to compliment your wedding and your personal style. If you’re planning a very traditional affair, a morning suit might be the order of the day; for a more modern twist, lounge suits are very popular – and can be worn after the big day. For example, a timeless 3-piece grey suit is a good option because the colour works well with every complexion and is a great colour to contrast a shirt and tie with. With this style choice, once the photographs have been taken and the ceremonies complete the groom can ditch his jacket and still look dapper.
2. When are you getting married?
It’s important to match the cloth of your suit to the time of year you’re getting married. If you’ve chosen for a lovely summer wedding, choose a lightweight fabric. For example, mohair is really breathable. If you’ve opted for a winter bash, heavier wool will be more appropriate.
3. What’s your colour scheme?
Most people will choose a traditional dark colour or a mid-tone grey. It’s also possible to really stand out and impress your partner by matching the lining to the bridesmaid’s dresses or the bridal bouquet! If the colours can’t be matched exactly- the lining should complement the suiting fabric
4. What’s your skin tone and shape?
Your skin tone and shape with affect the colour and style of suit you choose. For example, a pale skin tone will suit a lighter colour cloth and your height and shape will dictate the number of buttons on your suit jacket and waistcoat – if you’re unsure, you can book a no obligation consultation with an A Suit That Fits Style Advisor.
We would also like to take the time to let our brides and grooms know about the wonderful campaign ‘A Suit That Fits’ are involved with called ‘A suit for Success’. If you have any unwanted suits you can take them to ‘A suit that fits’ where they will donate it to a homeless person in order to get them back into work. The campaign is running until 26th April and when you donate an unwanted suit you can get £50 off a lovely new wedding suit!
What an amazing campaign and many thanks to Claire from ‘A Suit That Fits’ for sharing with us.
Much Bespoke Love
